Sir Keir said Labour would not support the Bill in its current form and demanded concessions on workers' rights, incorporation of the European Charter of Fundamental Rights into United Kingdom law, and limiting the scope of so-called "Henry VIII powers" which could allow the Government to alter legislation without full parliamentary scrutiny.
